About Kate Peters-Phillips DSFH HPD AfSFH MNCH (Reg)
I am a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist. I qualified from The Clifton Practice, Bristol, a recognised centre of excellence for hypnotherapy. I am a member of both the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) and the Association for Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH). I attend regular supervision and continuing professional development to keep completely up to date. I am currently studying for a Certificate in Medical Hypnotherapy which includes helping people with needle phobias, emetophobia (fear of being sick) and palliative care. I am fully insured and hold a recent enhanced DBS certificate to work with adults and children.
I worked for a long time in financial services. I gained a lot of experience and knowledge by working in a corporate retail and head office environment where delivery to timescales on projects and building and maintaining excellent relationships was paramount. Whilst I enjoyed this work I understand how the pressure and expectations from this environment can prove stressful. I left to spend time with my family and reassess where my passion lies. On occasions in my life I have suffered with anxiety and depression so this has fuelled my desire to help others who also suffer. I then discovered Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. I learned how we can use this therapeutic tool to help retrain our brains to free us from unwanted thoughts and behaviours and find positive solutions in a relatively short time. I now get immense satisfaction from helping people change their lives for the better.
